    Bree,

    Sorry, your guess was incorrect it's not that thread you have referenced that worked for device 3 for me,it was simply deleting the MRT references from my laptop's registry specifically under

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Safer

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Window


    Hope this helps , it's desktop Device 4 (where the entries above don't exist) that I'm drawing a blank on.

    I do not have any MRT references in these paths.

    I have an identical problem.

    I still have it. Still "blocked by administrator".

    Any ideas? I don't have these registry entries. I am on the latest-greatest 1903.
